#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

Check the answer by plugging it into the original equation:

#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

#"distribute and simplify left side of equation"#

#-10x+30+8x=22#

#rArr-2x+30=22#

#"subtract 30 from both sides"#

#-2xcancel(+30)cancel(-30)=22-30#

#rArr-2x=-8#

#"divide both sides by "-2#

#(cancel(-2) x)/cancel(-2)=(-8)/(-2)#

#rArrx=4#

#color(blue)"As a check"# Substitute this value into the left side of the equation and if equal to the right side then it is the solution.

#-5(8-6)+(8xx4)=-10+32=22=" right side"#

#rArrx=4" is the solution"#
